Easy Lemon Rainbow Chard

Colorful leafy green rainbow chard plated with a lemony garlic sauce.

Rainbow chard is definitely one of my favorite leafy greens. I love adding to a stir fry for added crunch from the stems or just eating by itself as a side dish. It’s so tasty paired with lemon, garlic and red pepper flakes, simple but flavorful and easy to whip up.
